El Salvador Homeland Tour and Service Project

The purpose of the trip was to provide adoptees from El Salvador with the opportunity to get to know their culture and their heritage, to work in the orphanages of the country, and to assist in providing the children in the orphanage with medical evaluations, treatment, and procedures.
